There has been little work to date into the controls on slope-to-channel fine sediment connectivity in alpine environments largely ice-free for most of the Holocene. Characterization of these controls can be expected to result in better understanding of how landscapes “relax” from such perturbations as climate shock. We monitored fine sediment mobilization on a slope segment hydrologically connected to a stream in the largely ice-free 8·3 km2 Hoophorn Valley, New Zealand. Gerlach traps were… CONTINUE READING
